portion of the united states' economy -- housing is uniquely american. a lot of building products go into homes made right here. think about all the people who touch a home and away from its permit to its sale, builders, laborers, people who make piping, windows, doors, stoves, air conditioning, sinks, toilets, showers, baths, and, of course, electric and plumbing. then there's all the white collar jobs, the banks, sales, lawyers, they all get paid. and the retailers who need to make the place great. to me we will look back on this moment and recognize that while the horrendous rules imposed on the cypriots certainly damaged confidence in europe and the euro once again, what actually might have mattered in america is that the housing boom was picking up steam at the same time. i know, stupid. brilliant! so what am i asking for here? i'm trying not to be too positive or negative. but i'm definitely playing the skeptic. i worry about what i know and even worry about what i don't know. but most important, i want to emphasize what could drive the market either way. and the bottom line is

guys have to come up with $7 billion. and the way the cyprus economy is structured, it's almost all banks. huge banks relative to the size of the economy. and so the solution they came up with was taxing deposits in banks. that has turned out to be incredibly controversial. last night the parliament here voted it down even though there had been intense negotiations for weeks about it. now today, it's about plan "b" and it's not clear whether there will be a plan "b." the banks are closed, only get money out of atms, the financial system here on the verge of collapse. and if things don't get resolved quickly, this could be the first country that leaves the euro, chris. >> obviously, investors around the world are watching this really closely. what about here in the u.s.? what kind of repercussions might we feel here? >> well, the biggest repercussion that we saw is when they decided they were going to tax the deposits in banks, just like we have in the united states where we know that if one of our banks fails, we are protected up to a certain amount, 250,000, they have that law in e

will harm, not help our economy. that's why i'm reaching out to republicans and democrats to come together around a balanced approach, a smart, phased in approach to deficit reduction, that includes smart spending cuts and entitlement reforms and new revenue and that won't hurt our middle class or slow economic growth. and if we do that, then we can move beyond governing from crisis to crisis to crisis and we keep our focus on policies that actually create jobs and grow our economy and move forward to face all the other challenges we face from fixing our broken immigration system, to educating our kids, to keeping them safe from gun violence. and few pieces of business are more important for us than getting our energy future right. so here at argon, and other labs around the country, scientists are working on getting us where we need to get ten years from now, 20 years from now. today, what most americans feel first when it comes to energy prices or energy issues are prices that they pay at the pump. and over the past few weeks, we saw, we went through another spike in gas prices, people a

for someone to admit? the real irony is if the economy does get better, companies will do better and stocks can do better. but bonds, they will almost always do worse. always. i can't think of a single situation where you could own bonds right now, regardless of your age or risk profile. owning a dangerous long-term bond, with that budget deficit we have, come on. i have -- you buy that stuff at 130 versus 100, and first okay, johnson & johnson, common stock with good dividend, and it makes no sense to me, bernanke bashers tell people to sell their bonds. get everyone to sell long-term bond funds, but unless they wise up, these bears will be the enemy of your personal wealth. they have kept you from taking that opportunity and they have no humility and no remorse. nothing. no gain at all. they simply don't think this rally counts. they don't think it matters. and that you couldn't have made any money, and they think that these gains are ill gotten. here is my bottom line. ill gotten gains are gains that are stolen exappropriated or booted. these stock markets gains are totally legitimate, a
